ABOUT THE PRODUCER

It was 4 years ago when José Argüello, the youngest family member, decided to produce Specialty Coffee to demonstrate Mexico's capability of providing great coffee to the world, as well as the ability to compete with the world's best coffees out there.
In 2018 they created a protocol which was replicated in 2019 and went on to compete at Mexico's Excellence Cup contest. They won 1st place with a score of 93.04 for its natural Geisha. This marks the highest score in the history of Mexico COE.
José Argüello is married to Berenice Coutiño Ruiz and they have three kids: Emilio, José Manuel and Federico.
